Dear Team,

      I am using JSF integrated with rich faces, i.e <a4j:support event="onblur"> if we perform onblur it will fire my server side validation.

To highlight the field with the different color, i have implemented with input.focus. but it is not working in IE 6&7. so that i have implemented the same with JavaScript.in that java script code onblur is used.if i am using this java script highlighting is working fine, but my actual business validators are not working.

i tried with JQuery also, but here also validators are not firing.

So kindly help me how i can implement this with out disturbing my actual BL.

where do the users of your website hail from? here is microsoft's breakdown of ie6 usage: http://www.ie6countdown.com/

as for ie7, it never got off the ground in the first place

You probably should say that to your customer, it's in their best interest.

There is no reason to develop for antiquated browsers. Where do you draw the line? In a field where technology turns over every 18 months, why support browsers that are 11 years old(IE6) and 6 years old (IE7). Browser upgrades are free, and recommended by their respective distributors. Heck, even MS doesn't support IE6 anymore, they kind of held a funeral for it.

It is important that the information contained in your website is accessible and navigable on all platforms. As far as the display bells and whistles,  I'd leave the old browsers where they belong, in the past.

If you still want to support hover in old IE's, check out csshover3.htc. Make sure you load it conditionally as its presence can mess up newer browsers (IE8 specifically).

Please find the java script code below,

<script type="text/javascript" src="/scripts/jquery-1.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
   $(".textInputField")
      .focusin(function() {
         $(this).css("background-color", "green");
      })
      .focusout(function() {
         $(this).css("background-color", "white");
      });
});
</script>

...

<input name="field1" class="textInputField">
<input name="field2" class="textInputField">

Should work if you modify input fields as follows:
<input name="field1" class="textInputField" onblur="this.style.backgroundColor='green';" onfocus="this.style.backgroundColor='white';">
<input name="field2" class="textInputField" onblur="this.style.backgroundColor='green';" onfocus="this.style.backgroundColor='white';">
